Embattled Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain will make his first appearance on CBS’ Late Show With David Letterman next Friday. Cain, a syndicated columnist, former radio talk show host and president and CEO of the Godfather’s Pizza chain, emerged as the unlikely frontrunner in the Republican presidential race. But over the past week, he has been hit with accusations of past sexual harassment. Cain will be able to commiserate with Letterman who 2 years ago admitted to having sexual relationships with female employes as a fallout of the foiled extortion attempt against him. Like all late-night comedians, Letterman has been closely following Cain’s campaign and recently parodied the candidate’s ad featuring his chief of staff, Mark Block, smoking a cigarette.
